As everyone that follows our blog and YouTube channel knows, we are big advocates and supporters of heat pumps, but we are also firm believers that homeowners should have options when it comes to sustainable ways of heating their homes. We were approached by OFTEC earlier this year to see if we’d interested in participating in a new trial for a sustainable biofuel called HVO (hydro treated vegetable oil) – we were intrigued and accepted the offer.
With electricity tariffs skyrocketing we have configured our oil boiler (now running with HVO) to work with our air source heat pump. In this video we discuss how we set things up and what the benefits of HVO are. Please leave a comment with your thoughts or questions below.
As mentioned in the video you can write to your MP about HVO and we have attached a template for your reference that you can modify to match your requirements.
